There is just something amazing about sauteed or roasted fresh vegetables piled on top of delicious grilled french or sourdough bread. The toast is rubbed with a garlic clove and drizzled with excellent, fruity extra virgin olive oil. I often have this for dinner with a glass of good wine. It makes me happy.
So happy that I decided to serve a bruschetta assortment for my Memorial Day party this year. Three different types, a big hunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, some salami, and the aforementioned wine. Sounds perfect!
My first bruschetta is topped with a delicious, garlicky, fava bean spread. I first shared the recipe back in 2009. Click here for the whole story but, to save you time; I reprinted the recipe below:
